    Default Japanese Flag- Authentic?

    I have been looking for a World War 2 era, panel sewn, Japanese rising sun naval ensign for a while.

    I stumbled across this one for sale. It looks OK, definitely seems appropriately aged, but I don't recall seeing the stitching go across the center of the sun like in this flag. I could be mistaken though. Is anybody familiar with these flags?

    I will DEFINITELY say thank you!

    Regards,

    Steve

    Thanks for the replies.

    Anybody else?

    Even if you're not a flag expert, any 'feelings' one way or another about the authenticity of this flag?

    It's fine. I'm not liking the holes all that much, or the unattractive discoloration, but it looks authentic in appearance and construction.

    Thanks for the input.

    It's funny, because I like to see holes, edge wear, some fading etc. I'm immediately suspicious of artifacts, flags in particular, that look too "nice."

    Hi,

    A nice IJN flag.

    What' s the dimensions?

    With that extra thread reinforcements, I assume it's for withstand strong winds.

    Probably was on some sort of ships.

    Cheers!

    Here is one of my flags. It's about 3"X5". I bought it from the vet that brought it home many years ago. As you can see there is a seam also.
